Kenny Richard Hoke, 46, of Caldwell was arrested Sunday, February 4, in relation to a Ronceverte armed robbery incident.
On Morgan Hollow Road in Ronceverte, Trooper M.T. Bynum was dispatched in response to a reported armed robbery on Sunday, January 28. The victim was allegedly contacted by Catherine Brewer to "hang out" that evening, with Brewer bringing a female friend along. After getting inside of the vehicle and sitting down next to Brewer's young daughter, the victim reportedly stated Gavin Doss and Hoke pulled him from the car, beat on him with "what he thought was a shovel," while asking "where is it at?" After taking "some medication" and "a black cell phone" from the victim, all four suspects then, along with Brewer's young daughter, left in Brewer's vehicle.
